Etymology[edit]

From Dutch gruizen.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

gruger

  1. (colloquial) to dupe, con; to rob
  2. (colloquial) to devour, scoff

Conjugation[edit]

  • This is a regular -er verb, but the stem is written gruge- before endings that begin with -a- or -o- (to indicate that the -g- is a “soft” /ʒ/ and not a “hard” /ɡ/). This spelling-change occurs in all verbs in -ger, such as neiger and manger.
